Active Sky Beta is here
« on: May 11, 2020, 10:13:41 AM »
Just set up AS Beta and it's working fine so far.  Cloud art is working too with the P3D v5 update.

Yes, I‘ll try installing it the next days, too.
The new version should work with v4 and v5, I think? Or is it exclusive for v5?

It asks if you want either 4 or 5.  AS Cloud Art works also with the patch they have now too.  I am happy so far.

Wow, the new active sky beta is working great. Love the "tracks" the plane makes when it is raining, cool.

I'm having no CTD's ... I've backed the frame rates down in anticipation (sliders a little left). The only problem I'm seeing is cloud flickering pretty badly and some "hits" that make it pause for a split second now and them.  Its a beta, so it will be fun to watch how they improve it and HiFiSimTech is pretty good at this stuff.

Active Sky V5 Beta 2 is now out.  Of course, I'm flying in different weather, but the flashing clouds I had are now gone. A typical day at Misty Fjords ... zero viz!

And at Misty Moorings this morning ... a Misty Morning. Looking just like it really is.

With Active Sky on ... three CTD's just as I turned the corner south out of Bostwick inlet from Misty's Place. Turned AS off, and no problem. After I turned off Active Sky, I was still experiencing some flickering with the clouds, so it is NOT AS causing that problem.

CTD's today with Active Sky "on" ... leaving it off and V5 is running fine.

I‘m wondering if AS can work stable as long as v5 isn‘t it.......LM‘s announcement releasing the next HF in the next couple weeks isn‘t a solid base working on for 3rd party developers....just thinking.

Trying to get a complex program to work with an ever-changing base would be difficult.

Beta 3 is ready to Download at HiFiTechSim.com

Update: I downloaded it and ran it, can't get past the "Connecter" that it wants you to use. Locks up in a loop. No way to "try" it.

I read different reports on AVSIM about HF3.
Some users report much more stable AS version.....others still report ctd‘s.
